Safe solution to keep seed dry

Ugh!!! Why does wet-cold feel so much colder? And it can be a mess with the seed in the wild bird feeders too. These are Feeder Fresh days. The question I'm asked most about the product is "does it work?". Yes, Wild Birds Unlimited sells it but I use it in my feeders too. A little goes a long way.

I pour a cap-full in a four pound bag and stir it in, maybe 2 cap-fulls on rainy days like today. Any moisture that makes its way to the seed is immediately absorbed and leaves the seed free to flow for the birds to eat. Birds usually just leave the feeder fresh in the feeder to continue working until I fill the feeder again. One bottle can last for a month or more depending on the weather.
